What is number 5 about?
My thought was so that it could direct more power to the battery and the heater wouldn't syphon the power off. However on another forum I inquired if the Lightning had a way to heat the battery and it was theorized by one that the same heater may heat the battery and the cabin, believing then that the truck wants to divert the heat to the battery, thus helping it charge faster. Otherwise - it doesn't make sense.

I've not had to deal with this yet in Texas, but with the Tesla - the best thing for me was to save the charging for the couple of hours before I left, it depends on how much charge you need on a daily basis. I want the charging to happen just before I leave - which will warm the battery as much as anything, then I just started the car 10 minutes before I was ready to leave which turns on the heat, seats, steering wheel. Best of all worlds.
